Comment (by sbrajesh):

 There is a simple solution to the user id spoofing.
 Unless we add roles/caps in future who can see other's message, w can
 simply reset user_id in bp_has_message_threads after the parsing of the
 arguments. Except if super admin, It should always reset to
 get_current_user_id() for now.

 That will avoid any future leak there.
